    I want to replace the '&' character with 'And' string when a new folder is created or an existing folder is renamed in RadFileExplorer or ImageManager of RadEditor. my goal is to do not allow the users to enter '&' character.

    Best Regards,
    Jafar Amiri

    Hi Jafar,

    You can achieve the required functionality by subclassing the RadFileExplorer's content provider and overriding the following methods:
    • CreateDirectory - method called to create directory
    • MoveDirectory - method called when moving or renaming a folder

    More detailed information regarding RadFileExplorer content provider is available in the following help article:
    Using custom FileBrowserContentProvider
